Dear Sunbury Family, You have my sympathy. I loved Martha she was so kind and humble. I loved her love of all of you. She loved her family. Her passion for music and nature inspired me. You all did a wonderful job of taking very good care of her. Each one of you truly gave all you had from your hearts. As Martha took her journey home to God I know she left all her love for you here in each of those hearts that gave so much to her. God bless you! Love and prayers, Pat Hubbard
